National Church Residences continues growth

National Church Residences will expand with a new affordable senior housing community after a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) award, and break ground in 2025, according to a news release from the company.


National Church Residences will lease the land to build The Scarborough from Trinity Baptist Church, a church directly across the street from the new development. The community will be income-restricted and for those 62 and older.

The organization noted that HUD data showed the area was in need of affordable housing, with 50 or fewer affordable housing units per 100 low-income households in the area.

Including the HUD award, The Scarborough will be layered with a 4% housing tax credit from Ohio Housing Finance Agency and the City of Columbus.


In partnership on the project, National Church Residences is joined by Nix Development Company LLC, a minority-owned real estate development and advisory firm.

National Church Residences, the largest U.S. nonprofit provider of affordable senior housing, offers care to over 46,000 older adults, and the nonprofit organization has over 360 communities nationwide.
